Find out erlang path

Hello,

Sorry for the simple question, I'm trying to build a release tar that 
includes the runtime system. I figured I have to add the {erts, Dir} 
tuple to the options when building the tar, but I can't seem to find any 
function that returns the current running erlang base directory (i.e. 
the base directory where the current version of Erlang was started).

The only way to get it (so far, as I can think) is to read from the 
win32 registry, but that seems so cumbersome. Also, 
"erl_prim_loader:get_path()" returns a list of paths to (respectively) 
kernel and stdlib, but not directly to erlang...

Thanks.
